wedding venue wishlist

The more wedding and photographer blogs I stalk, the longer the list of venues on my “bucket list” — places where I aspire to shoot weddings!  If you’re searching for a lovely spot to get hitched, I recommend checking these places out.

one // CARONDELET HOUSE // exposed brick, hardwood floors, vintage furniture, gorgeous 1928 architectural details, and 12-foot farm tables?  Some of my favorite things EVER.  See some lovely weddings + inspiration here, here, and here.

two // THE VILLA // this dreamy venue in San Juan Capistrano was the spot where a friend of mine got hitched earlier this year (and the event was stunningly captured by Whitney Darling Photography).

three // SAN YSIDRO RANCH // I’m a total sucker for lavender farms.  And ranches in general.  Enough said.  A very pretty recent wedding here.

four // CASTLE HOUSE & GARDEN // I mean, it’s a castle.  And oh-so-pretty.  Sign me up!

five // PARIS, FRANCE // pretty much any venue for a Parisian destination wedding would make me a happy, happy girl.  I studied abroad in Paris in college and have been back to visit a few times.  I mean, it’s Paris!  Show me a wedding photographer who doesn’t want to travel to Paris to shoot a wedding.  I’d also settle for a wedding at a Loire Valley chateau or … well, anywhere in France.
